Crafty weekend

Posted by djw209 on February 12, 2010

This weekend I plan on using an upholstery tack to work on a project I’ve wanted to do for a long time. A few years ago, my Dad’s sister gave me a table and chair set that her parents (my Nana and Pop-Pop) used. This table is pretty special for me – it’s one of the few items I have from them, and I don’t have too many memories of them since they died when I was pretty young.

This is an awesome picture of my Dad (#3 of 3 kids), his sister (My Aunt Kit & #2 of 3 kids) and my Dad’s brother (my Uncle Tommy & #1 of 3 kids):

I plan on using this fabric to “brighten” up the table set and our kitchen:

I may also make a super special curtain for our bedroom. That will require borrowing my mother in law’s sewing machine. But I LOVE the fabric for the curtain (I plan on using a black out liner behind this fabric so my bedroom will finally be dark when the parking lot lights are on!!):

The curtain fabric has 3 shades of blue, the darkest being close to black which will go well with our black and white flowered duvet!

I plan on taking before and after pictures…we’ll see how it goes. If the projects are a total bust then you won’t hear about them! hahaha!

Have a great weekend! Tonight I’m off to a Lia Sophia party at a friends house, but first I get to see my chiropractor! Yeah! I love my chiropractor!
